“I’m passionate about helping others have the hope that they can live a healthy life. I want them to know that they can feel better than they ever thought possible.” –Kristen sharing essential oils with everyone. She says, “I want to give everyone the hope and the natural options that I have. I love educating others on the proper way to use these oils. I can’t help but share with everyone because of what they’ve done for me. I feel like I’m doing people a disservice if I don’t tell them about these gifts.” It was at convention that she first got excited about reaching Diamond. She says, “Convention just lit me on fire.

People will know that you do this business and recognize you as the oils expert. They will know to go to you with their questions.” ?
